lets talk about movies

Woo! So Tumblr has decided this blog is now cool enough to show up in the tags! Thank you to all of the people who have spread the word about this lil’ blog. As I said in my inagural post yesterday I am so, so over all the fandom nonsense. So I started this blog to offset it. Basically, let’s fight the haters by being awesome.

The mission statement: 

This is a blog for talking about how rad your fellow Klaroliners are, on anon or off. Do you want to squee about someone’s kickass fanfic publically? Hit me up. Do you write fanfic that wouldn’t be have as awesome without your beta reader? Does someone’s graphics turn you into a puddle of feels? Do a particular person’s metas give you life? Has a vidder made you laugh, cry, and make high pitched dolphin squeals all in under 4 minutes? I’m here for it all.

Let’s talk about songs and movies that give us Klaroline feels. Random images that pop up on Pinterest or Instagram that make you stop what you’re doing and internally scream ‘FOR KLAROLINE’ like you’re William Wallace in Braveheart.

I would love submissions! About anything, but particularly about vids and graphics! I can talk about fic all day everyday but I’m not as familiar with those sections of the fandom. You can do it anonymously, through the askbox and I’ll track down links. You can shoot me an email (proklaroliners@gmail.com) is what you want to say is too long for the askbox. You can use the submit button too.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions, things they’d like to see those are 100% welcome to!

Let’s Talk About Movies:

MENTAL ILLNESS PORTRAYED ON SCREEN
What makes it so appealing to the audience?

“For actors, it’s a cinematic gift, a chance to play a characteristic as well as a character. For directors, it’s a chance to explore the psyche in visual and narrative detail. For audiences, it’s a window into a world they will (hopefully) never experience. When combined in the just the right way, without histrionics or spectacle, the results can be incredible.” - Source

It seems that I have upset a lot of people with this gifset because of my lack of education and research about mental illness. If you feel insulted by this post you must know that i have no intention to be rude or disrespect to anyone my first intention is to talk about the movies and the characters. But I understand that I made a horrible mistakes. I am truly sorry for this I can only hope you would accept my apology.

I told my mom that I wished I worked for Marvel and she said I’d be their worst nightmare and I was like “right”

anonymous asked:

how necessary is it for me to watch the previous mad max films before fury road? because i want to see it but i know absolutely nothing about the franchise

It’s ten thousand percent unnecessary. You don’t have to know anything at all; the Mad Max movies are easy to roll into because they are, in a lot of ways, Westerns, and there’s nothing simpler to find your footing in than a Western.

Let me repeat that as loudly as I can: you don’t have to know anything about Mad Max to watch Fury Road. 

I just. Really want this movie to do well. Box office numbers speak loudly, they’re the only language that many producers understand, and if they tick high enough, it’ll prove that there’s an audience for smart, gorgeously-shot, pulse-pounding, female-driven films that feature 99% practical stunts and clock in under two hours. 

It’s easy to complain about Hollywood just giving people what they think we want, but that goes both ways. We tell them what they want. So, if you’re torn between not seeing this and seeing this, or between seeing Pitch Perfect or Fury Road this weekend–just fucking see Fury Road. If you regret it, I’ll pay you back your ticket cost myself. 

Let's have a nice open discussion about Pacific Rim!

Cause I am still on a giant robot high after seeing it last night, and I can’t put coherent thoughts down on paper yet for a review of anything. So let’s just talk about robots vs kaiju!!

I am specifically interested in comparing Pacific Rim to Evangelion and Godzilla.

Wes Anderson // Centered, A Visual Exploration of the Director’s Perfect Symmetry in Films (x)

“I have a way of filming things and staging them and designing sets. There were times when I thought I should change my approach, but in fact, this is what I like to do. It’s sort of like my handwriting as a movie director. And somewhere along the way, I think I’ve made the decision: I’m going to write in my own handwriting.”

I’m actually wondering do people even enjoy…

I probably went to the cinema more than ever the past three years or so, but when I’m at home all I watch is my favorites. So if I hadn’t watched Birdman there I’d have to put in my backlog which is insane. Finally got to Dark City - 1998.

Ha! Fucking love Dark City!! I very rarely go to the cinema I normally just wait for the Blu-Ray release and buy it then so I can sit in the comfort of my own home. I’m the same tho I have a lot of flicks I have brought but haven’t watched (probably a list as long as the games I’ve brought and not played tbh). It just seems every so often I’ll come on here and see a post about ‘you shouldn’t watch this movie because…’ and I just wonder if people even watch movies for entertainment now, or just find ways to make people avoid them at all costs.

Let’s Talk About Movies:

PSYCHO (1960)
Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Motifs are generally so unobtrusive in a film that they can pass unnoticed even after repeated viewings. In Psycho, for example, Hitchcock employed the “doubles” motif with great density. The 2 pairs of leading actors (Janet Leigh/Vera Miles and Anthony Perkins/John Gavin) were cast according to physical resemblances, which suggest psychological similarities. Many of the scenes feature mirrors, which reinforce the doubles motif, as well as suggesting themes of reality versus illusion, truth versus deception, and conscious behavior versus impulse.

Let’s Talk About Movies:

Famous typewriting scenes.

  1. Schindler’s List (1993)
  2. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961)
  3. The Shining (1980)
  4. Moulin Rouge! (2001)
  5. Atonement (2007)
  6. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)

There are many ways to describe a character’s personality. From eye contact, his dressing style or a simple hand gesture. With a classic typing scene, the audience could see the inside of his mind, something that the character won’t let other people knows except for us, kinda like having a secret with your favorite character.

Alright, friends. As of this morning I am 1000% done with certain fandom nonsense that I’m not going to waste my time talking about because I have much better (and more fun!) things to do.

Which is where this blog comes in! This is a blog for talking about how rad your fellow Klaroliners are, on anon or off. Do you want to squee about someone’s kickass fanfic publically? Hit me up. Do you write fanfic that wouldn’t be have as awesome without your beta reader? Does someone’s graphics turn you into a puddle of feels? Do a particular person’s metas give you life? Has a vidder made you laugh, cry, and make high pitched dolphin squeals all in under 4 minutes? I’m here for it all.

Let’s talk about songs and movies that give us Klaroline feels. Random images that pop up on Pinterest or Instagram that make you stop what you’re doing and internally scream ‘FOR KLAROLINE’ like you’re William Wallace in Braveheart.

Let’s do this!

(Suggestions very much welcome and appreciated. I’m actually not great at Tumblr so excuse the weak layout that I will get around to sprucing up later.)

Honestly, Jessica Drew would fit pretty much anywhere you’d put her in mcu, and if they don’t include her character somewhere, then that’s just a complete waste
